Aldea Cunda Group's story

Gonzalo is a member of the solidarity group “Aldea Cunda”. He is 25 years old, married, and has two children. Sr. Gonzalo started a small convenience store a few years ago and it has grown gradually since then. His hours of operation are from 7:00 A.M. to 8:00 P.M. His wife helps with managing the store. One of Gonzalo’s challenges is having to go into town to buy his products and transporting them back to his shop.

The loan Gonzalo is requesting will be used to restock his business with new merchandise. He will invest in the purchase of products such as rice, lard, beans, soap, detergent, dairy goods, soft drinks, snack foods, candies, and other items. He hopes that the support of this loan will enable him to increase his income and to submit his loan payments on time.

His dream is to improve his convenience store so that it becomes one of the best-stocked shops in the area. This is his first loan cycle with FAMA and he hopes to complete his payment commitments on time.
